Cameras for Conservancy loves to help spread the word about great work other organizations are doing and S.O.A.R is one of those organizations. According to the S.O.A.R website, “Saving Our Avian Resources (SOAR) is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 1999 dedicated to saving our avian resources through raptor rehabilitation, education, and research. SOAR maintains all necessary US Fish & Wildlife Service and Iowa DNR permits to provide the rehabilitation and education.”
Cameras for Conservancy member John Ryan was on hand to document the event for them and donated his photos to S.O.A.R. Here are some of our favorites below. He says that many rehabilitated raptors were released back into the wild during the event including an owl, two kestrels, red tailed hawk, and juvenile bald eagle.
